We're sure you already know that Pikmin 3 Deluxe is on the Switch right now, but it can't hurt to remind you! Nintendo is out to spread the word on their latest Wii U-to-Switch release, and you can get the full rundown below.
Command a capable crop of different types of Pikmin™ to strategically overcome obstacles, defeat creatures, and find food for your famished home planet! You can even bring a second player along to divvy up tasks as you explore a world that seems larger than life from a pint-sized perspective.
Pikmin at your pace
Return to your ship before time runs out, or you (and your Pikmin) could be in big trouble. If you prefer a more casual approach, a variety of difficulty settings, lock-on targeting, and optional hints have been newly added. With less pressure, you have more time to strategically command your Pikmin and take in the lush scenery.
Different Pikmin have different abilities and strengths, so you’ll have to think about which ones to grow (and throw). For example, winged Pikmin can fly, while blue Pikmin can breathe underwater. By strategically choosing the right Pikmin and changing between the three captains (or coordinating with a second player), you can work efficiently to collect fruit and grow your Pikmin squad.
Befriend different types of Pikmin and strategically use them to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and more.
More difficulty options, lock-on targeting, and optional hints make it easier for newcomers to learn and play.
